Ha so is riding the Gunbarrel but YOLO
you are clearly experienced oh wise one.
Yeah its difficult if you don't have a kitchen , its amazing what you can do with a microwave.
Even better with a multi-pot and a power point!
Yeah in my poorer days customised versions with vegs and 2 minute noodles were good .
Still make it at work w microwave and angel hair pasta.
Other quick cookers are cous cous and red lentils.
It really just changes the convenience, we normally leave Canberra after school (4ish) and head to Jindy, unpack then go and pick up a dinner. Saturday we would normally have a meal pre cooked that we re heat in the oven whilst getting changed.
This year we will likely try and reverse that and take soup or something re heatable for Friday and pre order a dinner Saturday. (Our fridges aren’t huge in the lodge).
Thredbo is easier as self contained but it’s still nice to duck out and support friends business.
Our lodge is putting on a chef for breakfast-lunch-dinner this year which is a great option (except we're not going). Usually we are supplied 7 breakfasts, 2 dinners and self serve or eat out the rest of the time. Keeps everyone out of the kitchen and also not having to eat out (unless takeaway).
Also note, no COVID community infections reported from any restaurants in Victoria (nor from BLM rally for that matter) - mainly being exchanged through families and/or lax hotel quarantine security.
Went last weekend. Restaurant lines were long but well staffed so didn't spend too much time waiting. Food was priced higher than Sydney (not suprisingly). I would recommend bringing your own food to cook if you are staying at a place with a kitchen.
Went to Kareela Hutte for lunch yesterday. Sat outside out on the corner under beautiful blue skies and had a great meal. A severely reduced menu this year, no pork knuckle or veal schnitzel . You need to book well in advance to sit inside, but outside on a sunny day is first come first serve.
I enjoyed the Veal Goulash and Apple Strudel, both of which were to the usual Kareela standard.
Oh I am missing that view now more than ever
No Wiener or eisbein???? Yikes.
That goulash does look good though...
Not a restaurant review / pic (yet) but I got an email today confirming my Kareela Hutte reservation for an upcoming weekend and I am now counting down the days!!
Shout out to Jodie at Crackenback farm! We have seen her curries advertised on Tuesdays on facebook. We are headed up this weekend and staying at the Jindy lodge so asked her if she could set some aside for Saturday! She made it easy for us and we will pick up the curries on our way back down the mountain tomorrow!
Jodie is a close friend of mine and has done it tougher than many this year, yet she's so resilient and just keeps on doing her amazing thing. She's an incredible chef and she KNOWS HER WINE! (Evans family) I'll pass this feedback on, she'll be stoked
So we stopped in at Crackenback cottage and picked up dinner, looks very good!
I asked about other options than the curry and they have a whole freezer of farm style pies, beef brisket, Shepard’s pie and some others perfect for the oven!
Is Kareela Hutte the only mountain restaurant open this season?
Eagles Nest is open as is Merritt's.
Ok cool. Thanks. So just BS and FB not open.
An unrelated question, Waimea is open but the traverse from top of Anton's is not - how does that work?
Stopped in at Crackenback cottage to pick up dinner again, chicken and leek pie, popped the pie in the oven when we got home and unpacked the car.
hotdogs for the win in the car park cooking, just need to remember a stool next trip.
edit have ordered the beef brisket pie for next weekend.
Love the farm and Jodie’s food is amazing, well worth a visit!
but thredbo burger bar
bang on, will go again
A few more lunch patrons in there compared to our visits last year.
I have been impressed with their ability to pivot during these times. Was planning to go out there one time this season. I will still I hope, when I'm more mobile.
OMG YUMMO!!! Mouth is watering looking at that
stool usually comes a bit later.
it was very good! Honestly so much better than a stodgy take away and cheaper!
Today’s offering from Crackenback cottage, beef brisket pie!
looks soo good!
Alfresco pizzeria is doing take-away only now. Luckily the weather was nice on Saturday evening so we say outside at one of the outdoor tables.
I think they are superb pizzas, heaps of topping and the bases are cooked perfectly.
Alfresco is gold... their consistent quality is second to none. We never, ever go to the Village without enjoying one of their pizzas. Which is pretty incredible after having worked there for 5 years
Chicken and leek ... it's well named. Looks lovely.
Jodie's food is always worth the trip.
absolutely, especially now! She is making it really easy to get great quality food without having to go out! That’s not a reflection of my cooking either.
Highly recommend Jodie’s Tuesday night curries. The curries are great and they are delivered to Thredbo.
Which establishment is that?
can she deliver on a Sunday?
I do not think so but worth a call.
Crackenback Farm which is opposite Wild Brumby.
Call her as we had the curry on the Saturday and she just set some aside for us, we then picked it up on the way!
If there’s one side benefit of Covid it’s that a very fine establishment in Crackenback Farm is getting exposure it might otherwise not have received.
we might have to give it a crack this saturday. Not too far from the campsite, pick up, then back sitting around the fire eating a nice curry.
to be fair Crackenback has always got love in this thread, but with Covid it’s just easier to enjoy!
I hope she starts bringing the pies etc up on a weekend and sells them from the van or “delivers”.
agreed. Covid has certainly made many local businesses change gear and most are still offering home delivery or at least take away, which was only offered by a few before covid.
Kuma pies still my fave snow pitstop. Chicken and leek had big slices of (not dry) chicken breast throughout. Very nice breaky after an overnight in CBR:
Tried to have lunch on the mountain but as the mizzle turned to snow around 11:30am, we were keen to get some laps in while the rest of the mountain took a lunch break so by the time we tried to grab a bite everywhere was already at capacity with a wait list. Definitely recommend booking in advance if you can.
We skied some more and decided to try Cascades - we were lucky enough to get their last table, to the very next person behind us they said it would be a 1hr wait.
After a meaty breaky I wanted something a bit less so and got the smoky eggplant bruschetta and some polenta chips. All very tasty and what I was after. My friend really enjoyed her oysters and mushroom risotto- but added a fat bit more salt. The choc dessert was really rich. Very happy with our meal. Thought about heading back out as the snow was settling in the village but it was after 3pm and my jacket was soaked through at the sleeves.
So tired I forgot to take a pic of dins at The Terrace at The Denman, so here’s a screenshot from my IG story-
I had the pumpkin fettuccine and it was very nice, the pasta tasted like fresh homemade stuff and the sauce was rich and creamy. Went very nicely with a glass of Chardy followed by a Pinot.
My friend had the lamb shoulder and said she wasn’t going to finish it, but did (and it was a big portion) so it must have been good.
We asked to move to the bar for a night cap but it was at capacity both times the very friendly, super lovely, wait staff checked for us so I retired to bed very early - hence the super early updates this AM.
Champagne fondue at Kareela Hutte was much better than I thought it would be. Super cheesy, accompaniments were super plentiful.
Pretzel was not warm and sadly rock hard. Fine with the fondue though. Chips were good.
Overall happy with our meal. Too much food for 2, glad we didn’t order more!
Hawaii five oh burger and jalapeño poppers from the pub.
It was ok, the poppers were super spicy but I couldn’t really get into the burger. Still devoured it all
Wandered up to Berntis for take away dinner last night, I had the beef rib, my better half had the waygu fillet as did @Lady Penelope, washed down with a nice red from lady p’s cellar. Both the ladies steaks looked beautifully cooked, my rib was amazing.
I know Zack had a rough start but he seems to have picked up a good chef and the meals are good. We stopped in for desert mid week as well and the baked cheese cake was very good but I’m a sucker for cheesecake.
kids had Alfresco Pizza, I’m amazed we could get two pizza’s here for the price of the wood fires offering at T bar....
